Kristen Bell thinks Dax Shepard is the best she can do, ever

Premiere of Universal Pictures' "Couples Retreat" - After Party

Although I have admitted to not really “getting” Kristin Bell or why some people think she’s amazing, I do have to acknowledge that she seems like a young actress who has her act together. She acts professionally, she’s never photographed leaving some club in a drunken stupor, she doesn’t say dumb crap in interview after interview, and she seems to be quite intelligent and nice. So why does this girl think that Dax Shepard is the best she can do? Ugh. So, yeah… Kristen and Dax announced their engagement yesterday. What the hell?

Kristen Bell is engaged to Dax Shepard, her rep confirms to exclusively. Shepard, 35, proposed over the holidays, a source tells Us.

Bell, 29, debuted her ring on the red carpet of the Grammys Sunday night.

The couple first stepped out publicly in January 2008. Bell detailed her perfect date night with Shepard in the November issue of Women’s Health.

“There is almost nothing, barring a natural disaster, that I would let eat into my time at home, playing Scrabble with Dax or talking to my girlfriends,” she said.

She joked that they were competitive while filming romantic comedy When in Rome, currently in theaters.

“We were trying to one-up each other,” she said. “That’s what we do at home, too. It’s like, ‘Wait – watch me do this funny bit.’ ‘No, watch me do this funny bit!.”

The secret to their relationship?

“I’ve learned the necessity for healthy communication. How important it is to talk about your deepest, darkest fears and feelings,” she says. “Your partner should hear your most embarrassing insecurities, because once you say them out loud, you’ve created a safe zone.”

And “a snuggle party can fix anything — it’s true,” she added.

Bell did “show off” the engagement ring at the Grammys (photos here). It doesn’t look that big. Sigh… but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that Kristen think Dax is a keeper. This is the guy who got his start on Punk’d, for the love of God. And now we’re supposed to buy him a legitimate actor? And worthy of a television star trying to make it in film? Seriously? Besides that, every time I’ve seen him interviewed, he comes across like a total douche. I need to have a talk with Kristen.

Here’s Kristen at the Grammys. Dax wasn’t there, and you can’t see her ring. The dress sucks too. This girl needs a new stylist, in addition to everything else working against her.

    I love Veronica Mars, but since then haven’t liked much of what she’s done. But I hold out hope for her. And that she gets a good stylist.
    He seems like an ass. They’ve been together a long time and she must be happy with him, but he comes across as kind of stupid and not nearly as funny as he thinks he is, and is not very attractive. I don’t get it.

  2. princess pea says:

    As I’ve said before, I have no particular interest in KBell… but lucy2, I’ve heard that in real life she’s kind of an ass, so it sounds like maybe they are a good match.

  3. LindyLou says:

    Maybe he has a big schlong….lol

  4. Dani says:

    I honestly see nothing wrong with that dress. It was classy without being matronly, and she seems like a classy person so it fit her personality. I don’t think you have to be busting out of a ball gown for the gown to look nice. I loved it.

    Wasn’t there an article awhile back where someone wrote about how bad a dress was and almost everyone disagreed? Maybe she’s that the one who needs the stylist *coughs* :D

  5. Kevin says:

    Rumor has it that his face isn’t the only body part that resembles a donkey! That tidbit came out when he was handling Kate Hudson by her jacked up ears. Good call Lindy!

  6. meme says:

    don’t care about her or him but he looks way douchier than she does.

  7. Stephie says:

    Great title to this one. I think she can do (way) better. Start the clock.

  8. sayrah says:

    Maybe she loves and wants to spend her life with him. Ever think of that?

  9. Iggles says:

    What’s wrong with Dax?

    I totally remember him from Punk’d. The show was less funnier after he left (he got too recognizable). But then again, any reality show based on surprising people gets less entertaining as time goes on — when it gets popular it becomes harder to surprise people.

    Anyway, good luck to them both.

    whats going on with her teeth?

  11. Corina says:

    I dunno, Dax always seemed really funny to me. She’s done interviews where she talks about how they just zing one liners back and forth with each other and talk trash on one another all the time. That’s the kind of relationship I would love to have, so to me it makes perfect sense that they get married!

  12. pd says:

    she should thank her lucky stars that someone will marry her annoying ass.

  13. annie says:

    Hmmm…..timing for publicity? Publicity for a movie? Hmmm…..

  14. girl says:

    I thought he was hilarious in Idiocracy.

  15. Eme says:

    Dax is a total hottie, and so is she. He seems really funny, and if they can laugh together, I think that’s great.

  16. Nope says:

    Maybe she’s like… in love with him? I know that’s fucking crazy – marrying for love right? *rolls eyes*

  17. Truff says:

    My morning bowel movements have more talent and personality than those two idiots. They deserve each other.

  18. whateva says:

    me likes Dax in flix!! “Let’s Go to Prison” was hysterical! i think he’s gyped in the praise dept. (no offense intended towards our Gypsy brothers & sisters). I missed out on why everyone wants to bag on him. What’s his backstory? (besides Punk’d) why snark? not rich enuff?? i’ve not seen him interviewed either . . . . . .

  19. Anna says:

    At least she’s not settling for John Mayer or Gerard Butler type horndogs.

  20. Kevin says:

    What do you eat Truff?

  21. cara says:

    @girl…and Grandma’s Boy. He’s got an amazing bod too. She’s facially, very pretty compared to the rest of the Hollywood blonds. AND I love her quote of how she values her time.

  22. Ashley says:

    My love also comes from Veronica Mars. That show was so good.

    But I agree she hasn’t really done anything to top Veronica (the charcter, who was ballsy and funny). She’s always so bland in her roles.

  24. zinga says:

    She’s 29. That says it all. She either settles for a loser now, pops out 2 babies, or turns into a perennial “the time’s just not right for me to have kids” type like Cameron Diaz and Charlize Theron

  25. jeff says:

    what a bunch of sour grapes you all are. she is beautiful, he is hot and funny, and they are adorable. maybe they aren’t LOOKING for “the best they can do” but rather the person who is right for them? not everyone is always looking for the better deal, kaiser, that you think otherwise is cynical and quite sad.

  26. Scarlet Vixen says:

    The Kristen Bell hate makes me so sad. I thought she was fantastic on Veronica Mars (made it one of my favorite shows ever), and she’s had my loyalty since then (even after her slightly annoying character Elle on Heroes).

    They’ve been together for awhile, so it seems they’ve got something good going. Best of luck to them.

  27. Chicken Tetrazzini says:

    She has that same pinched little rat face as Avril Lavigne, and he appears to have some sort of facial deformity that needs surgical correction. HE HAS NO CHIN, and also has horrible pop eyes. I don’t see the appeal of either of them, and I certainly won’t be seeing their lame, cookie-cutter romcom. How are these two celebrities again?
